Dr Kweku Nunoo Ghartey, the father of Afro-pop musician Jay Ghartey and three other siblings Kiara, Joseph and Frederick Ghartey has died after a 3 year battle with cancer.

The world renowned and Harvard trained eye doctor founded the Eye Consultants Clinic in Osu, Accra.  He was a successful head of ophthalmology at Mass General before returning home to his motherland Ghana twenty years ago to take care of his patients and served his beloved motherland Ghana.

After suffering a stroke in Accra, Dr Ghartey was treated for his condition in USA where doctors told him he was terminally ill.  Only given months to live, Dr Ghartey was able to survive two more years battling the cancer against all odds through his sheer determination.

Jay Ghartey took an extended break from his career to nurse his sick father but eventually his body tired out and he died. Although Dr Ghartey was very ill, the family always had hopes for his recovery and are in deep mourning for the leader of the family.                       

Dr Kweku Ghartey is a son of Winneba. He passed away at 77.
